I walk my dog past this seaside shelter every morning which is along seawall at Sheerness. I've shot many different images of this structure, but always looking for something else, cloudy, stormy etc. On this day I decided to use my old Soviet FED2 rangefinder camera with a Jupiter 8 50mm F2, on a roll of Fomapan 100 Classic.
Having not long purchased the lens of ebay and knowing from reviews of this lens, the Jupiter 8 is well known for flare, as this lens has little or no coating, time to take it out in the low morning summer sunlight I thought! The sun was just coming up over the buildings in the distance as I positioned myself for the shot before me.
Using my faithful Russian Leningrad 8 light meter, which I have had since 1988 and yes, is still accurate, I took reading for the shadows and the reading was best going to be overexposed by one stop to three stops. Aimed the rangefinder and had to guess each shot as the image was very hard to see though the tiny FED viewfinder, it was almost burnt out for me to see because of strong sunlight. So setting speed, remembering to cock shutter first with an old Soviet camera, focus the lens roughly and set aperture and following what my meter had told I took three shots overexposing each one in turn, a bit hit or miss I know but the third image worked.
